Hitachi's Travelstar 2.5" HDDs have been praised since they took over the reins from IBM. We test a 250GB model today.

Test System

 

Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad QX6700 @ 3GHz (9x333MHz)

 

Memory: 2x 1GB DDR3-1600XMP OCZ (Supplied by OCZ Technology)

 

Motherboard: ASUS Maximus Extreme (Supplied by ASUS)

 

Graphics Card: MSI GeForce 8800GTS 640MB (Supplied by MSI)

 

Cooling: GIGABYTE 3D Galaxy II (Supplied by GIGABYTE)

 

Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP SP2

 

Drivers: Intel INF 8.3.1.1009, Forceware 163.21

 

Our test system remains the same from our Hitachi Notebook Upgrade Kit review and the Western Digital 2.5" HDD review, which we will be porting over some results from for comparison.

 

We used a desktop system as above to get the most out of the drive without having the notebook itself as a limitation.

 

HD Tach

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 3.0.1.0
